IAPMO, ASPE Sign MoU for Training, Certification of Engineers in 'Green Plumbing Design'

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to train, test and certify qualified plumbing engineers in the United States to perform “green plumbing design” work, systems designed to conserve and protect water supplies and reduce energy consumption connected to the delivery and use of water.

The organizations recognize unique characteristics in each association that make such an agreement a viable and worthwhile endeavor to achieve the following objectives:

  • IAPMO will develop a green plumbing design curriculum based in part or whole upon current green plumbing and green plumbing inspector curriculum, with input and possible additional curriculum provided by ASPE.
  • The Green Plumbing Design program will be tied to the current ASPE Certified Plumbing Design program by requiring the CPD as one of the eligibility requirements for sitting for the Green Plumbing Design exam.
  • IAPMO and ASPE agree to co-promote the Green Plumbing Design program, and also the Green Plumbing Inspector and Green Plumbers Training programs.
  • IAPMO and ASPE, through the use of the IAPMOLearn staff and industry subject matter experts, will coordinate the overall course development, hours of instruction, method of delivery, and cost of instruction and assessment of the Green Plumbing Design program.

“With so many great synergies at play between these two organizations, working together to further the development of increasingly more sustainable plumbing systems through training and certification of the engineers who design them is an ideal collaboration on behalf of our industry,” said GP Russ Chaney, IAPMO CEO. “We look forward to the launch of the Green Plumbing Design program.”

Founded in Los Angeles in 1926, IAPMO has grown to be recognized the world over for its Uniform Codes. With offices in 12 U.S. states and 13 countries, IAPMO has assisted with code development in such diverse places as Saudi Arabia, China, India, Jordan, Egypt, Israel, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Venezuela, Colombia, and the United Arab Emirates.

ASPE was founded in 1964 as an organization dedicated to the advancement of the plumbing engineering profession, growing from a group of less than 50 individuals in Los Angeles to an international society of more than 7,000 members.
